Although officially named Seabury Park, this park is also known as Mid-Bronx Desperadoes Park, in recognition of the non-profit group that was instrumental in its development, and People's Park, in recognition of the community effort that helped make the park possible. The park’s official name honors Dr. Samuel Seabury III (1710–1796), rector of St. Peter’s Protestant Episcopalian Church at Westchester Square and the namesake of the surrounding neighborhood. Dr. Seabury was born in Groton, Connecticut, in 1729, graduated from Yale University in 1748, and was consecrated a Bishop in Scotland in 1784. Dr. Seabury was the first Protestant Episcopalian priest ordained in the diocese of Connecticut.
